HOW TO MAKE CARROT SOUP step by step?

This vegan carrot soup can be done in a pressure cooker, a normal pot, or your InstantPot (affiliate link). Either way, it is delicious and is a perfect way to start including ingredients and spices full of antioxidants and special powers in our diet.

  1. Add the coconut oil to the pot over medium heat; add the onion, garlic, ginger, and turmeric. Sauté for a couple of minutes until everything smells delicious.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients, cover the instant pot, and press the soup setting on the Instantpot (affiliate link) (20 minutes at High pressure). If you use a regular soup pot or a slow cooker, leave the soup until it simmers and the carrots are fully cooked.

  • If you make the soup over the stove, stir from time to time, you do not want to stick to the bottom of the pan.
